This Week's Goals

We have been so blessed to fill our August with such fun family memories.
In the picture above we enjoyed a day trip to the Columbus Zoo where we got to get up close with some kangaroos!  
August has been so busy for our family that I've neglected to share my goals the past few weeks.  We've been squeezing in lots of summer fun as we transition back to school days.  I also began teaching fall piano lessons.  Here are a few of my goals for this upcoming week.  
This Week's Goals
Marriage, Mothering, & Family
1.  Eli is playing flag football this fall!  I'm excited to attend his game on Saturday.
2.  Eva has a therapy appointment this week.  I am so thankful for all of the incredible progress that she has made over the past year.  
3.  Take both children to the park to play this week.  

4.  Work on plans for Disney.  I need to work on our packing list and make some reservations.  I also need to purchase a number of items before we leave.  Eli & Eva both need new bigger shoes and socks.
5.  Spend at least one hour sewing on Evangeline's new dress.  

6.  Visit the chiropractor.
7.  Read four chapters of Gospel Treason and continue working through the book of 1 Peter in the Bible.  

Ministry & Friendships
9.  Meet up with a friend for coffee one afternoon.  

10.  Help my grandmother one afternoon this week.  

What goals do you have for this week?  Have you settled into a new fall semester routine?  


  1. we started FIAR! its been so good! let's see...other things i'm working on: teaching a comp class, working on a poetry curriculum for a freelance class i want to sell, working on book #3, painting the kids bathroom and bedrooms, getting ready for a yardsale, and trying to lose 10lbs by december. sooo .. its a lot but i only do a little bit a day, and the progress adds up =) or at least that is the theory!

    1. Oh my goodness you have a lot on your plate! FIAR is so much fun! I'm trying to decide which book we are going to row next. :) How do your girls like FIAR?

    2. they love it!! i was just asking zuzu this morning what her favorite part of our morning time is and she said she loooves the books. and i thought they'd be sick of me reading the same book day after day, but june keeps bringing our FIAR books back to me to read (like "Lentil"--they Love Lentil, I've read it everyday for almost 2 weeks!?)
